The close proximity to the Plaza and the free parking took us to this hotel. It was nice and the breakfast was good. Staff was very attentive. Margaritas were excellent in the roomy bar. Our room was a bit cramped because of two armchairs that barley fit in, but they were nice to sit in. There was some cryptic explanation... More

Convenience, cleanliness, comfort are top notch. Breakfast buffet, $15 food credit, tea and sherry hour, excellent service and free parking are fabulous extras! We stayed three nights and will def return.

I don't want to repeat what has already been said, but that's the way it goes! LOCATION: Very convenient for coming in and out with or without a car. The Plaza's probably about a 10 minute walk at the most. There's also funky little shops right across the street with a wine store that does tastings! They're only about a... More

Santa Fe, NM is my favorite place to visit in the whole world. I've been going there every few months for almost 20 years, usually every couple of months. I'd move there if my kids didn't live near me. So over the years I've stayed at every hotel at or neat the plaza except the ones over $300 per night,... More

We've been to Santa Fe several times and have always stayed in different places since there are so many interesting inns and B&Bs in town. This was our first time at Inn of the Governors and will not be our last. We chose the inn because it is within walking distance of the plaza, has free parking, offers a free... More

Inn of the Governors was recommended to me by a friend and driving into their driveway, I suspected for a moment I had been pranked. As soon as I walked into the lobby, I knew that was NOT the case. The feel of the lobby along pool and dining areas truly let you know that this was a special property.... More

Our stay was over the first few mid-week days of October. My lady companion and I staid three nights on the upper level. Our room had a small balcony and a working fireplace, (not used by us). The room was tastefully decorated and the size was more than adequate. No surprises, no problems. Some other reviewers complained about parking lot... More

We were recently in Santa Fe for a wedding and stayed at the Inn of the Governors. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The breakfast is fabulous and the bar/restaurant is very good.

This hotel was part of a package deal with our airfare. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the hotel was quite excellent! Our first room was not great, a bit under the stairs and without one of the cute patios all the other groudn floor rooms had. We asked to be moved and paid a slight upgrade fee in... More

We come to Santa Fe year and always enjoy staying here. Very good location to the plaza and restaurants. The breakfast bar is outstanding. The restaurant has smaller meals like hamburgers, Mexican food and a daily special which is good. If you don't want to move your car the entire time you really don't need too. Always very clean.
